Birding Minnesota's Boreal Forests and
North Dakota's Prairie Potholes

This trip covers prairie pothole habitats in North Dakota, plus marshes and boreal forests in northern Minnesota, resulting in a very productive birding trip. For many North American birders these locales have not yet been visited during the breeding season, even though birding on this trip can result in numerous target species and an expansion of one's life list. 


Target species include Gray Partridge, Ruffed Grouse, Spruce Grouse, Red-necked Grebe, American Bittern, Yellow Rail, Sandhill Crane, Piping Plover,Great Gray Owl, Black-backed Woodpecker, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Alder Flycatcher, Boreal Chickadee, Sedge Wren, Sprague's Pipit, Chestnut-collared Longspur, Baird's Sparrow, Le Conte's Sparrow and Nelson's Sparrow. Boreal Owl, Northern Hawk Owl and American Three-toed Woodpecker, though very rare, are possibilities
